Cinquains  May 9, 2010 - June 6, 2010

Reading and Deliberating


A cinquain is an easy poem for the most part. The requirements are that it has five lines, first line is two syllables, second is four, third is six, fourth is eight, fifth is back to two. An example would be:

In the
Shade of the Oak
Trees we smoke weed and watch
Her undress. She asks her brother
To stop.

It can be about anything you want. I just think they're fun to write. It can be metrical, but that's not required for this contest.
